S-Pen Wanders Away?
I ws showing my new Note Pro off around the office and someone mentioned that there is a setting that makes the screen "go nuts" when the S-Pen gets too far away. So far, I haven't found anything that looks like a "go nuts" setting.
So - I thought I'd ask the "font of knowledge" here - is it a setting, or some App that I need? I'd sure like to have some notice if my S-Pen goes for a walk without me.

Re: S-Pen Wanders Away?
Haha there's not a setting for the screen to 'go nuts', but there is a setting for the tablet to let you know when you're walking away from the S-Pen (only it really doesn't).
So, first things first: The setting is in the S-Pen settings, you should see a switch labeled "S Pen Keeper". Whenever the S-Pen is out of its holster, and you walk away, the tablet will vibrate, emit a sound, and display a pop-up that reminds you to take the pen with you.
Now, why do I say it really doesn't? It doesn't actually KNOW you've left your S-Pen behind. It just knows it's not in its holster and the gyroscope and sensors in the tablet indicate it that you're walking. If you have this setting ON, the tablet will notify you even if you walk with the S-Pen in your hand. But still, it's a nice addition in case you forget to take it with you.

Yeah, the "go nuts" was a quote. Not reflective of the mental state of my tablet (or some sort of cashew-related performance).
Under "S Pen" in settings, I have "General" ["Turn Off Pen Detection," Pointer," and "Direct Pen Input"], "Air View" ["Air View," "Air Command," and "Sound and Haptic Feedback"] and "Pen Detachment" [Pen Detachment options," Pen attach/detach sound" (this one also appears again in "Sound"), and "Attach/detach Vibrate"]. Nothing called "S Pen Keeper." Not under "Developer Options" or "Language and Input" or "Security", either.
Any other thoughts? Is this comething common to some other Samsung tablet?
